Instead of taking that $700,000,000,000 and giving to the predators who got us into this mess, how ’bout we take that same $700,000,000,000 and pay off the mortgages of the people who need it most? At $100,000 apiece, that would be enough to pay on 7,000,000 mortgages.
Voila! No more mortgage crisis, and the dirtbags don’t get rewarded for gaming the system and running their companies into the ground.
I like the sound of trickle-up economics for a change, and it can’t possibly work any worse than what’s going on now, right?
